travel diary

Finally some pics from my recent trip up north... 

for anyone travelling to port douglas here are some must dos and sees:

Jungle Island: tie-dye emporium and happy hippy shop
Port Doug market: every Sunday. You will find craft, organic produce, and local artists

Eat & Drink:
Bazaar at QT: New, market place style, grazing experience– quite unlike nothing else.
3nineteen: $5 sangria cocktails from 4-5 everyday. sip happily while watching the sunset over the water– absolutely magic!
Coffeeworks: Bit of a drive out of town, but defintely worth the trip for locally grown coffee beans and organic, (vegan!) chocolate.
Golden drop: Wine made from tropical mangoes– what is there not to like!

Bike riding: Grab a cruiser and ride along 4-mile beach. If your lucky the wind will propel you the whole way. Definitely the best thing to do while at Port Doug.
Jet-skiing: If you are lucky enough you will see dolphins
Snorkelling: Take a trip out to the Low Isles, or like us head off to Green Island for a few days– seriously magical place.

I recommend staying as close as possible to the beach and shops– it means you are just a lazy stroll from everything you could ever want. If you are looking for more of the resort experience, you cannot go past the Sheraton Mirage. Yes it may be terrible outdated with it's tropical themed carpets, but the pool and facilities are beyond amazing.
